# Chapter 1: Functions and Their Graphs (part 1)

#### Test Date(s):

**A-Day Students: 9/17**

**B-Day Students: ****9/18**

Day 8: **September 17th/18th. **Objective: Students will prove their knowledge by completing a mid-chapter test. **Class Activity: **Take the test. Homework stamps were counted today (there were 6 possible stamps) **Homework:** Complete the PC1-6Practice document.
